I stayed at this hostel prior to section hike last wednesday night. The place was very clean, great waffle breakfast, and Laurel (owner) was very nice. She also provided a shuttle for myself and my brother-in-law to 522 (Front Royal). It was nice that she asked what time do you want to leave and then made it work.
The only downside is the price is a little high in my opinion(compared to other hostels).
room and shower $28
pop, klondike bars, laundry are all comparable
overall 4.5/5 stars.
I will definitely stay there again.
